Alert not working after alert owner account is disabled

Updated March 11th, 2016


Alerts owned by an account user that has been deleted/disabled have stopped working.


  • Orion Core 2015.X 
  • NPM 11.5 and Higher


Reactivate the user account or change the ownership of the alerts:

Warning: Changing the ownership may return different results due to various user limitations.

  1. Create a backup of the database.
  2. Click Start > All Programs > SolarWinds Orion > Advanced Features > Database Manager.
  3. Click Add Default Server and expand down to your SolarWinds database.
  4. Double-click the Alert Configurations table.
  5. Delete the default query and replace with the following: 
    UPDATE AlertConfigurations
    SET CreatedBy = '{new user}'
    WHERE CreatedBy = '{old user}'
  6. Click Execute Query. 
    • For a list of accounts, check the Accounts table.
    • Pay attention to letter casing in account names.
  7. After updating the DB, restart Alerting Service V2.
